for "new day." kate, thanks for all the great coverage from london and for mickey and me back in new york, thanks so much for watching. "cnn newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. cheerio, carol. >> yes, cheerio, and good morning to you all. have a great day. happening now in the newsroom. the buzz over the baby, breaking new details this morning direct from the hospital. william and kate and the birth of a prince as the world watches and waits for a name. moment of impact, amazing new pictures this morning as a plane's landing gear collapses. the fiery crash and the terrifying moments and the question, what went wrong? security fiasco. the pope's visit to brazil marred by a bomb plot, a wrong turn, and barricaded by gridlocked traffic. new concerns this morning in a country notorious for crime.
6:01 am
is the pope safe? caught on camera, divers off the california coast almost devoured by two humongous hump-back whales. wow. "newsroom" starts now. and good morning to you. thank you so much for joining me. i'm carol costello. this is a 41-gun salute in honor of the prince being born at st. mary's, and we'd like to welcome to our american audience and viewers from around the world. so much for that legendary british reserve from london to liverpool, brits celebrate the birth of a future king. big, bold headlines scream the news across british newspaper "the daily telegraph" announcing somewhat cheekily the baby was heir at last.
6:02 am
the guardian used eight words to capture the story and its magnitude, a birth, a boy, a prince, a king. max foster at st. mary's hospital where crowds are hoping for an appearance from the royal family and our kate bolduan is at buckingham palace. in the village of bucklebury, possibly one of the first stops for the royal couple. right now, celebrations echoing across london, as i told you, church bells are ringing, dozens of shots are being fired in salute to the new baby prince at the tower of london, 62 rounds are being fired.

6:06 am
just to tell you what you're seeing here, 62 rounds being fired from the canons in honor of the prince being born. simultaneously in green park the troops unleashing 41 rounds and the bells of westminster abbey will ring for three hours in keeping with royal tradition. that's where they were married. kate bolduan joins us live from buckingham palace. can you hear it? >> i don't know how you can't hear it, carol. green park, as you mentioned, just one of the places, one of
6:07 am
the locations where this ceremonial gun salute is happening and it's right over my left side. and everyone can hear it and it seems this clearly doesn't happen every day, but these gun salutes, they are a sign of respect, they are a way of welcoming and, obviously, a show of celebration. it's interesting, carol, i was talking to kate williams, the royal historian, just earlier and she was saying, and this makes sense when you think about it. this is also the way the gun salutes and bells ringing was all part of way back in the day a way of announcing to the public who didn't have access to newspapers or couldn't read the newspapers or hear the announcement a way of announcing that an heir was born. clearly, something for the country to celebrate. and that's part of this tradition that we're seeing and that we've talked about so much throughout, just the birth of an heir and all the tradition that carries on through generations and centuries. and we're seeing part of that play out in london right now. >> isn't that a beautiful -- that is gorgeous, you have to
6:08 am
admit, that is unbelievable. i can't believe that they are going to ring the bells of westminster abbey for more than three hours today. >> you know, might be a good day to take a day off work is what might be a good suggestion or at least bring your ear plugs to work. everyone we've talked to around here, either going about their business but everyone is clearly aware this is a very special time, and if you weren't excited in the anticipation, everyone's celebrating in the moment of this new royal and heir being born. >> this is just an incredible picture. kate, you stay right there, because i also want to talk to max foster. we can stay on these pictures, though. max, can you hear me? >> yeah, i can. it's fascinating to see this happen. the last time we saw this was for princess eugene, so it's customary for gun salutes at the birth of a prince or princess and what they signify is respect or welcome. this occasion it's both, really,
6:09 am
respect for the monarchy, because this is a future monarch that's been born, but also welcome because they are coming into the world. there are a complicated set of rules to these gun salutes, and they are practiced to the tee and you can see these guys and girls putting it all into practice. they've been trying very hard to get this exactly right and it's going pretty well. i have to say one other thing, it's not just on land you're seeing these sorts of occasions, out at sea, all the queen's ships, there are many of them, they are all flying the royal enzyme today, as well, in honor of the new royal baby. >> okay. let's talk about that royal baby, because the baby is supposed to pop out with his parents later today. tell us about that. >> well, we were waiting for the moment, weren't we, when we were going to come out on the doorstep and we have been given some guidance from palace sources saying it will happen either tonight or this evening, uk time tomorrow morning. the earliest in four hours'
6:10 am
time, but certainly within 24 hours. so it is happening. there were some checkups being carried out on the duchess and her new son this morning. was there a delay because of that? not sure. we do know this is a family that's trying to bond. the parents really want to get to know their baby before they come out to the world and certainly, carol, i'd be pretty apprehensive to come out to this barrage of media. i mean, i've never seen anything quite like it. >> there must be hundreds of reporters there. i'm sure there are. back to kate bolduan for just a second. what's the scene like at buckingham palace? i know the queen is still inside. everyone's waiting to hear what the prince's name will be. >> it's all -- it goes from excitement when you get a little tidbit and then goes into anticipation once again. i was actually just looking behind me, they've come and gone. take a look if you can see behind me, carol, you can see the gun salute, some of them walking past right now. they walked past earlier during
6:11 am
our show as they were heading in to set up. it's really a beautiful sight to see, everything that goes in to celebrating this new royal, the birth of this prince. you can be sure that some day his mother and father will tell him you better appreciate everything that went into this and celebrated you, but here at buckingham palace, ever since i arrived this morning -- you can see the guns back there, if you can see right over the bushes. the crowds are clearly gathering. you can see them all behind me. this is where the gilded easel is announcing the formal announcement announcing the birth of the baby boy. eight pounds, six ounces, and everyone's asking the same question, what is the name of the little prince, what should it be. i think everyone you talk to has a better idea of what the name should be. i'm not good at those guessing games, clearly, because i thought the baby would be a girl. i'm out on that one. it is a fun moment, another hot day in london and there are really torrential downpours, so
6:12 am
everyone is braving the elements to wait and see the big moment max was talking about, carol, to see the duke and duchess come out on to the steps of st. mary's hospital with their baby boy. it will really give everyone a flashback to the moment 30 years ago when charles and diana did the same thing to introduce the world to prince william. it will be a poignant moment for william himself, but for everyone who's followed his life all along the way. >> i think we have a picture of diana with prince william in her arms. can we put that up for just a second? diana means a lot to people of my age, really could relate to her. you can see there's charles and diana with prince william in e dia diana's arms and how people greeted her after the birth of the baby. we're hoping the royal couple pops out soon, when they do, we'll take you back to st. mary's hospital. kate bolduan, stay there. we're going to get back to you at the bottom of the hour, live

overall. passengers describe it as a bang and a bounce. their southwest plane was landing at new york's laguardia airport when the front landing gear collapsed. the boeing 737 jet came to a screeching stop after skidding off a runway. 150 people were onboard the plane. ten of them suffered minor injuries. >> sort of came down really fast and kind of steep. then it just sort of banged and then it banged again, then sort of skidded to a stop. it all stopped quicker than you would have thought for as fast as we were going. it stopped pretty quick. >> i knew it was bad when i saw the door open and then when it started filling up with smoke, they passed out wet napkins, paper towels, to put over our nose and mouths. >> poppy harlow joins us live from laguardia where the runway just opened a few hours ago.
6:20 am
good morning, poppy. >> good morning, carol. runway number 4 opened about 7:00 a.m. this morning. very scary. one of the women i spoke with was hospitalized last night because of smoke inhalation, but luckily everyone seems to be doing okay. this was a scary and shocking landing for passengers on flight 345 coming to new york last night from nashville and what makes it scarier is the fact this comes just a few weeks after asiana flight 214 crash landed in san francisco. you can see sparks flying as southwest airlines flight 345 out of nashville lands hard on its nose. >> the nose wheel specifically collapsed. the aircraft skidded down the runway on its nose and then veered off and came to rest in a grass area. >> 150 people aboard evacuated on emergency slides. >> i thought it was just terrible job of the pilot, but i didn't realize what happened until i actually left the plane. >> it was like getting smashed in a car wreck.
6:21 am
>> very chaotic, no one knew what was going on, flight attendants crying. >> these photos obtained exclusively by cnn showed the scene inside the airport lounge where passengers waited hours for luggage from the stranded plane. according to the faa, the plane came safely to a stop at the edge of the runway. no injuries were immediately reported to air traffic control. the faa is investigating. ten nonlife threatening injuries were later reported, but the scare comes on the heels of the crash landing of asiana flight 214 that left three dead at san francisco international airport earlier this month. now images of that plane's interior showed charred seats, an eerie reminder of what can happen. the incident at laguardia closed the airport for incoming flights for just over an hour but caused a ripple effect for flight delays the rest of the night. southwest said in a statement it's cooperating with local authorities and the ntsb has been notified. and one of the passengers that i
6:22 am
spoke with a woman who was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation told me that overall the exit, the emergency exit from the plane, was pretty orderly. she said they weren't on the plane for more than ten minutes before getting on those slides and walking out on to the runway. we know at this hour, carol, that the ntsb is here. we know they are still assessing the incident to decide whether or not to open a formal investigation. the plane has been taken off the runway to a hangar to be investigated and we know that the data recorders have been recovered and sent to the ntsb labs in washington so they can hear from the pilots what was happening when that landing occurred. >> poppy harlow reporting live from laguardia this morning. still in the newsroom, ryan braun suspended, the milwaukee brewer has to walk away for the rest of the season without pay as major league baseball starts handing out penalties in connection with the growing drug scandal.

former national league mvp ryan braun gets the first punishment in the growing scandal over performance-enhancing drugs. braun will sit for 65 games and the postseason, all without pay. last month an espn report named braun as one of the 20 players linked to a south florida clinic. now the milwaukee brewers outfielder admits, hey, i did make some mistakes. rachel nichols joins us now and -- >> yeah, carol, apparently that mistakes were made refrain of the disgraced politician refers to ballplayers, too. quote, i realize now that i have made some mistakes. this situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family. he added, i wish to apologize to anyone i may have disappointed. all of the baseball fans, especially those in milwaukee, the great brewers organization, and my teammates. now carol, i can tell you that statement didn't do a lot to win over hearts around the sport or among fans. him talking about the toll this
6:27 am
has taken on him, using language that i apologize to anyone i may have disappointed. you've heard me say this before when we talk about disgraced athletes, if you're using the language, that's not a real apology. in fact, it reflects the attitude braun has had since he was first associated with performance-enhancing drugs in 2011. at that time, braun failed a drug test. not only did he not admit it, he went the lance armstrong route, loudly proclaimed his innocence and blamed the test collector at that time. braun succeeded in getting that test thrown out, but he is caught now. there are a lot of people who are angry with him for the arrogant way he's handled it and it's telling here, the major league players' association didn't fight the suspension on braun's behalf. many other players in the league are just as fed up with braun as the public is. >> you know what my favorite part of his statement was -- >> the toll it's taken on him?
6:28 am
>> at the end he said, i can't wait to get back to the game i love. come on, if you loved the game, you wouldn't have cheated. >> absolutely. there's a lot of people around the country frustrated with him and this whole situation. >> so what can we expect next, because there are 19 other players on that list? >> yeah, yankees manager joe girardi said yesterday, quote, i'm tired of steroids. he's certainly not the only one. but there's more coming. you mention the 20 other players who may have been clients of this performance-enhancing clinic, so expect to see more suspensions, including one of girardi's most high profile players, alex rodriguez. officials have been pursuing rodriguez harder than braun because rodriguez has been buying up documents that might incriminate him. a lot of yankees fans and players seem okay with them pursuing him. if the major league baseball association suspends him, yankees don't have to pay him.
6:29 am
if he's guilty, they also support seeing him punished. >> the yankees won't miss him because he hasn't been playing in forever, right, but players like jhonny peralta of the detroit tigers, having a banner season. if he gets suspended for, what, 50 games or more -- >> 50 games is the first offense. the reason braun got 65 games is they've been using the argument that if we had a discussion with you about this previous to this particular moment and you lied to us about it, that's a second offense in and of itself, so the suspensions could be pretty significant here. really baseball showing it is serious about trying to clean up the game, which is a good thing, but in the meantime, the toll it's taking on the game and the fans has been significant. >> yeah, thanks as always. opening bell about to ring, howie mandel is ringing the bell with america's got talent. investors should be at a good, good mood this morning with better than expected corporate

7:01 am
ceremonial shots. 62 rounds at the tower of london. in green park, the king's troops unleashed 41 rounds. max foster is at st. mary's hospital. and we're at buckingham palace. we're getting word that kate middleton's parents may be en route. >> they are, their first official visit. due here in the next few minutes, and a black cab we think, possibly the first family visitors to this royal baby. an exciting moment for them, of course, an exciting moment for kate and william as well, their first sort of showing of the baby to their family. they've had a good period of time on their own. now it's time to present him to the family. so a great deal of excitement here. some suggestion that a different -- we're pretty sure the parents are on their way. earlier on we have some pomp and ceremony around london. a pretty exciting place to be
7:02 am
right now. >> absolutely. such beautiful pictures this morning with the cannons celebrating the birth, and the horses running through green park. unbelievably beautiful. i want to put up a picture of princess diana. they popped out of hospital action and you can see prince charles carrying the baby. there are even bets made here about which royal will be carrying the newborn. >> yeah, exactly, because charles initially held william, and then handed him over to dianswera. i think it will by kate, don't you? i have no basis for that information. >> at some point they're due to come out and show the baby off, right? today? >> yeah. it will be this evening uk time. a for a hours from now or tomorrow morning. i think we will err on the side of today. they have talked about their gratefulness of the hospital
7:03 am
for, you know, housesing them and all of their help and support. they've been under some pressure because of our presence, a huge media presence, so i think if they can get today, you can see michael and carol in the backseat. we don't have -- a huge moment for them, being welcomed by a hospital official. carol middleton coming out first, the mother of kate middle -- they've come up from where the duke and duchess were saying just before the birth of their child. >> you can see them beeming before they went into the hospital. maybe they'll make remarks when they come out. >> yeah, they very rarely speak.
7:04 am
i think it's their policy that they don't speak. often there's been some bad press about carol in particular, and she never, ever responds. they came through the front door, they could have gone through the back door. so it was a statement that actually people are being expected at the hospital now. it's the beginning of the the announcement, and it would be appropriate that the royal family would come and then the couple themselves come out on the doorstep to present themselves to the world. a lovely moment for kate in particular, to have her parents be the first ones of both families to see their first grandchild and the next eyre, you know, after william. >> i know. i would want to see my mom. i would have so many questions for her. max foster, stay right there. thanks so much. if kate's parents pop out and talk, we'll talking back to the hospital. erin, this initial changing of

7:06 am
teenager. now to see her son have a baby, it's magical. >> reporter: people seem to be equally pleased. >> girls are too much drama. boys are great. >> we love boys, don't we? >> they're part of an impromptu birthday party outside the palace. they're popping champagne at the old pub in buckleberry. >> kate and william, great fabulous news, everyone here is so happy, and good luck to you, and have fun. >> reporter: london's landmark glowing blue paying tribute to the little prince, this as the great guessing game over the baby's name intensified. >> now speculating boys' names action so maim james or al friend. >> what about ethan? >> there won't be an ethan. >> at night, the full moon looked over a city celebrating

7:09 am
the photos are extraordinarily frightening. if this is the best the brazilian forces can do for the pope's visit, we want to watch carefully. this was an absolute mess. >> a home explores i have been device was found near a basilica where the pope is expected to speak tomorrow. all of this is antigovernment protests go on action fire bombs and tear gas flew at the government palace right after the pope left. several people were arrested. miguel marquez is in rio de janeiro this morning. what's security like now, miguel? >> reporter: well, they're making their final prep. i can tell you the dogs and the security has just swept through the copa cabana beach where the pope will be on friday. there is friday gates off the shore going back and forth to make sure that nothing untoward comes in from sea on this.
7:10 am
the concerns with the car, while seemingly terrible, the pope gets mobbed by people quite often in rome and other places he goes. we just don't often see it. he was also surrounded by the swiss guard in that situation, but clearly an uncomfortable moment. it was a very indicate on theic scene as tens of thousands came out to see the pope. the explosive device was in a bathroom in a parking lot near the shrine the pope will be visiting, but it wasn't -- no area where the pope was expected to go, and still not clear whether it had anything to do with the pope. certainly security here across at the country and certainly here in rio quite high. >> >> one of the things that probe makes it difficult, the pope wants to be able to physically touch people, wants to take the barriers down. sometimes that makes it difficult for people to keep him safe.
7:11 am
>> reporter: yeah, this is the concern. it's not the fully enclosed pope mobile that he on which has in rome. it's sort of half enclosed, and they're bringing babies up to imhad. he went in a very small sort of hatchback car from the airport to downtown. he welcomed tens of thousands of people wo lined the streets downtown. he wants to get out and touch people. there are other protests planned for friday. yesterday's were small in nature. there was a stand joch between several deferral even. because he is so popular, he's taken a lot of the gasp out of those protests, but we'll see if they kick up and guess going again on friday. >> miguel marquez, thank you. tech giant apple ain't what it used to be. it's been nearly a year since apple has released a blockbuster product. so what gives? alison kosik is at the new york
